I have a hp computer. I have upgraded the video from a ati to a nividia 6800gs. I keep nothing important on my computer just tons of games. I like to restore my computer to factory all the time it runs awsome after I do that. I wanted to no is there a program I could buy to make a new restore disk .It realy sucks putting in over 60 windows updates and then I have to remove the old ati drivers and put in the new nivida ones. It takes freaking for ever. What you guys think is there a easy way to make a new restore disk or am I out of luck. Please help me out...thank you.

Try N-Lite, my local computer shop told me to use this and make a disk complete with upgrades etc instead of doing lots of windows updates.

Personally, I haven't actually tried it yet, but it's worth a look.

I have the Paragon Drive copy 8 program. I use this program to copy my complete operating system to a older 10 gig HD that i have. I then save the HD until i need to recopy it back to the original drive in my computer. This is because i like playing games and downloading new software to try out.

Drive copy will let me copy the OS back just like it was when i copied it to the 10 gig drive, complete with all program, drivers and setting where i left them.

Sure does make it easy to reinstall.


Read the page carefully and you will have the full version of it.

This is working on 3 computers i am using right now.
